How To Treat Black Spots On Roses Organically

1. The first step is to deadhead your roses. These can suck up nutrients from the healthy parts of your plant. Be sure to cut at a 45-degree angle.

2. Once the dead flowers are removed, snip off the black-spotted leaves and branches. These leaves will be turning yellow and have huge black spots.

Try to remove as few as possible since leaves are the main way your plant gets its food.

3. Collect all of the leaves and branches you’ve snipped off. It is vitally important to get rid of these since the fungus can continue to live, even on dead leaves.

4. Remove any weeds and other surrounding plants that have fungus-infected leaves.

5. Do not put these leaves into your compost heap. The fungus will take over your soil.

6. Spread mulch like straw, soil or hay over the base of bush.

7. Use a homemade organic fungicide and give your plant a good spray including the top, leaves, and base.

You’ll need to reapply this spray over the space of a few weeks, generally every 7 days. If it rains, be sure to reapply.

8. Now you’re done! Your rose bush should look a lot happier and healthier already. It should start to form in a few weeks.

Be sure to water first thing in the morning. Do not water the foliage as this can encourage fungus to form.
